How are funds dispersed?
Annually, the NGSF Board of Trustees will allocate at least 50% of the Big T'Do Event proceeds and donations for grants. The remaining income is used for other expenses or is deposited into an endowment fund. An Allocations Committee is appointed and tasked with determing how the funds will be distributed among the six schools according to need, number of students affected, and greatest benefit to the classroom or school.
Grant applications are due dates are in the process of being formalized - so stay tuned. Grants are typically awarded each November.
We are excited to announce that in 2016 we awarded over $46,000 in grants and $30,000 in endowment funding.
Since 2001, over $600,000 has been awarded in grants that benefit our students and classrooms directly. Our grants support all academic disciplines - from providing new tools for science instruction and reading to making new investments in technology - any idea that provides support for student success is welcome.
